I fully concur with the other Reviews complaining about the unfriendly nature of the upgrade procedure and I consider myself reasonably computer literate having built several over the last few years. If you have Outlook installed already and you don't want it screwed up, then you must do a custom install and you MUST untick the option of installing a trial version of Office 10 (which is in the small print at the bottom of the options page). Microsoft - you could do better! The Office suite is similar to Office 2007 once you get it installed.

I have been using Microsoft Office for about 25 years, and have used just about every version. My special area of interest is Microsoft Word, which I have written with and programmed professionally for a living for most of that time.

If you have used Office 2007, the look of Office 2010 applications will be familiar. The most obvious change is that the Office button has gone, replaced by a new File tab just left of the Home tab. The File tab is where you'll find many document-related features, such as information (properties), recent files list, new document creation, sharing, help, and of course printing. All these features have been improved, though none more than the print feature, which has had a major overhaul. It is now easier to use. Its new layout has plenty of space to explain options, and it offers one of the best print-previews I have ever seen outside a professional DTP package.

The ribbon may now be customized. This takes a bit of fiddling, but it is quite easy if you take a moment to watch one of the tutorials on Microsoft's website. This enables you to add any command you like to the ribbon, including macros.

Some of the new text effects in Word are cool-looking but not especially useful to commercial authors. For example, reflections under headings look nice, but nobody would seriously entertain using them in a business presentation or a user guide. However, they do offer some fun design options for informal documents.
PDF-making is now built-in. It used to be available only as a free download (due to a spat between Microsoft and Adobe). The PDFs it makes are acceptable but lack the quality and features of Adobe PDF offerings.

If you are already running an earlier version of Office, be careful when installing MS Office Home & Student 2010 and read all the information on the installation dialog boxes. I was already running Office Professional 2007 and wanted to install Office H&S 2010, to run alongside it, not as an upgrade that overwrites the existing programs.
It takes quite a long time to install what, on the face of it, is 4 programs, but in reality is all the programs in Office Professional 2010. The additional programs are trial versions which you can convert to full versions by buying the appropriate overpriced Product Key. The problem is that you cannot have two Microsoft Outlooks running together and I found that my Outlook 2007 had been replaced by a trial version of Outlook 2010 which, if I had kept it, I would have had to pay for at the end of the trial period. I did a System Restore to get rid of Office H&S 2010 and re-installed it. This second time, I noticed that the Customize dialog box has 4 tabs and, although on the first tab you can select to keep previous versions of Office, you need to go to the second tab to instruct it not to install Outlook 2010 and any other of the trial programs you don't want.
Why is it that so many things these days have a catch? I can find no information on the packaging or in the Quick Start leaflet in the box that the entire Office Professional 2010 suite would be installed.
I haven't yet had time to make a full comparison of Excel, Word and PowerPoint 2010 v 2007 (I'm not interested in OneNote) but initial impressions are that the tweaks are minor and that, if you're happy with Office 2007, you probably don't need to waste your cash on Office 2010.

I have been using MS Office 2000 (yes, MS Office 2000) & felt it time to upgrade. At work, I have been using 2003 & of late, 2007 & was led to believe that the 2010 version is very similar to 2007, which I'm pleased to say it is. I have installed it successfully on an XP PC (yes, I'm still using XP) & shall shortly install it on a Windows 8.1 PC & am not expecting any problems.

I chose the 2010 version because of my familiarity with the 2007 version & had heard bad reports of later versions.

I chose the 3 version product because I have 2x PCs & I prefer to have the DVD version rather than downloading from the website using the product code, as this allows greater flexibility.

This version of Office lifts the User up a level and makes a lot of tasks easier. It also feels easier to use and operations become more natural. Integrating documents becomes a copy and paste without errors poping up, like the older versions. The Ribbon feature from File down is the most important part to learn and the online training helps to make using it easier. Help is quick and easy route to solving problems.
